Why he picked your friend over you
I really like this guy. I don’t know him well because I’m too scared to talk to him. We’ve caught each other’s glances, and his friends talk to me about him a lot. Just when I was sure he’d ask me out, he asked one of my best friends! I’ve never seen him look at her like he looks at me.
Dave: Regardless of signals you picked up from him or his buds, you two clearly weren’t connecting in conversation so it’s understandable he went another route. Unless you can score some chat time, looks like he’ll be talking up your pal.
Bill: Don’t you hate it when you think someone’s waving at you, but he’s really waving at the person behind you? Kind of embarrassing when you wave back. Any chance that’s what was going on? If not, maybe he took your shyness as rejection. Try to get to know him better and see what happens.
